terrorism vs political arrest over access to a mobile phone

Post by Admin on Tue Sep 26, 2017 9:40 am

Muhammad Rabbani, international director of human-rights non-profit CAGE, was today convicted under UK anti-terror law for refusing to unlock his iPhone and laptop for police when entering the country.

Rabbani, 36, was found guilty at Westminster magistrates’ court of willful obstruction under Schedule 7 paragraph 18(1)(c) of the 2000 UK Terrorism Act. This law gives Brit cops the right to detain anyone entering Blighty on suspicion alone and hold them incommunicado for up to nine hours.

Unbelivable!

If this is not a sign of an autocratic system in the making, I don't know what would be one.
1984 on the way.
This is happening while we are still in the EU, only the Gods know what could happen when we'll be out.
